Some photo additions to my Bird Photography pages after a day at Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge in Utah (June 2014)
No presentations or workshops are currently scheduled, since my energies will be going to starting off a new teaching job this year.
Washington Weather Forecast for Climbers
My friends Luca and Ephrat have created a wonderful mountain weather matrix which shows the 5-day NOAA point forecast for various locations in the US. As they are Californians, they mostly have CA locations, HERE. Since I cannot run .php on googlesites, they have generously created a PNW-oriented version HERE, for which I provided the data points for various climbing locations in Washington. This is very handy for seeing multiple weather forecasts all at once to help choose the weekend climbing destination. Gone are the days of obsessive refreshing of a slew of NOAA point forecast tabs!
Quick Link to Night Photography

This is one of my first articles - titled Following in my Parents' Bootracks, published in the 2005-6 Stanford Alpine Club Journal. It is about a few of my climbs during the Summer 2006 that paralleled climbs my parents had done over 25 years previous.
A multinomial regression analysis to determine if there is any definable numerical relationship between "Peaks," "Mounts," and "Mountains." Also includes interesting applications, such as quantifying the "strength" of a summit's type and asking if Mt. St. Helens is still a Mount.
